Sincere compliments on the costwish product. I reviewed the
pages today and will be writing this up in two reports for my
customers as examples of interface design for sgml documents,
creation and review of multiple sgml database schemas,
and as a good approach for certain types of sgml-centric test
tools (e.g., test by inspection). Sincere compliments to
Joe English as well for the engines. Nice guys! Beautiful in fact!
I will also forward your announcement to an individual in
the VRML community who has expressed an interest in
learning about SGML. Creating a script for VRML rendering
from costwish could be a very effective way to visualize
the data as you have done for the molecular DTD, for
visualizing an abstraction of VRML types themselves,
and as an alternative to the expand/collapse mechanisms
of 2D tree displays.
costwish makes the point clearly: wall to wall SGML-hub
enterprise systems can, should, and will be built.
The superiority of the approach over HTML-only,
object-oriented only, relational only, or any notation
hub style is undeniable. Standard querying and
HyTime conformance are the next necessary steps.
Again, sincere compliments to all.
